I'm not sure if eating cereal is ACTUALLY that healthy or not, but this ad shows how Magic Spoon cereal is at least better than the competition.

This guy Hidreley Diao uses AI and computers to render what historical figures look like.
These results are amazing!!
Apu from The Simpsons:
Moe from The Simpsons:
Arial from The Little Mermaid:
This is so interesting because we always see historical figures in these outlandish clothes and poses, and we forget they were just normal people most of the time.
Napoleon is always depicted like this:
When in reality most of the time he probably looked like this:
You can see more examples of these faces here and here.
So all last week I was at a birthday party trip for my friend Noah Kagan’s birthday! We were in the Florida Keys (specifically Islamorada) with trips to Key West.
Here's some fun pics:
Where we stayed
It was always a beautiful view of the ocean
Worked out here everyday
Hanging out on the beach
Our buddy Andrew Chen on phone calls all day 😂
Two people a day would give a little "class" on any subject
Our friend Joe gave a whole talk on the physics of airplane lift
We paddle boarded through mangrove trees (I saw TWO SHARKS in the water)!
Perfect street to ride on for Noah's bday!
Biking around Key West, FL.
So long Florida, it was a fun trip!
Now this is a total "1st World Problem".... but right after this week long birthday in Florida, I had ANOTHER friend doing a week long birthday ski trip in Utah (which I am currently writing this from) 😂
This is Park City, Utah
We went skiing
This picture was very difficult to get
4 of us went out one day, everyone else at the house wussed out!
I never ski with a face covering, and on Wednesday it was so cold for the first time the cold wind hurt my face 😬
Where I'm writing this from
This is a concept I always love explaining to people:
The "90-9-1 Rule" is a rule about most public online groups that states:
90% of people just lurk:
9% of people casually participate:
1% of people create most of the content:
This applies to most “groups” such as friend groups, political parties, social networks, and countries.
This means you can have an outsized impact by creating content.
If you have 1,000 friends on Facebook, and we apply this 90-9-1 Rule to it, here’s how it breaks down:
If you have 1,000 Facebook friends:
1% of 1,000 = 10 friends that post allllll the time.
9% of 1,000 = 90 friends that post from time-to-time.
90% of 1,000 = 900 friends that never really post.
I bet you notice this on social networks you’re part of. There’s maybe 5 to 30 people you see pop up every time, simply because they create the most content!
This is why you can massively amplify your voice by being the 1% that creates content others consume.
It's not for everybody, but it's a cool fact!
Hope you enjoyed these little tidbits, have a happy Friday!
